Commenting a recent news item on amiga-news.de, Davy Wentzler of OS4 fame said the on-board sound of the AmigaOne does not work, furthermore explaining the chip is physically not present on AmigaOnes produced the last 9 months.
Frank Gutschow said on 05-Mär-2004, 23:38: "Meines erachtens sollte definitiv wirklich ersteinmal der Onboard-Chip des AmigaOne unterstützt werden."
Davy Wentzler answered on 05-Mär-2004, 23:45: "I'm gonna say it once more: it doesn't work. There's even a big chance, the chip is not physically present anymore on boards manufactured in the past 9 months."
Will Eyetech exchange all defect and component missing AmigaOnes or will they refund users that received broken hardware?

"Eyetech and bill buck (he used MAI made boards too, right? or just chips designed by them?) should have sued MAI into the ground."
It would make more sense to sue VIA as they have more money.
However, I don't think you can sue in the computer trade when a product has bugs. Probably most large chips have bugs - CPUs certainly do. I think you will find that chips are sold on the basis of "while we make every attempt to remove bugs, the perfect functioning of our product cannot be guaranteed".
People decided to use PPC, against considerable advice. That puts you at the bleeding edge, using relatively untested hardware. If the AmigaOne and the Pegasos were standard-issue x86 boards, rebadged, there would be few problems.
You may feel that the advantages of using PPC make all these troubles worth while.
